As an older and (hopefully) wiser fitness professional, I don’t get caught up in all of today’s trendy health and fitness escapades. Daily I read about “the latest and greatest” convoluted approach to fitness and I just shake my head in disbelief. It’s amazing as well as saddening that today’s fitness culture has lost its way. It appears that workouts and trainers are focused more on entertainment than actually improving ones health and fitness levels. I’m not saying that all that’s out there in today’s fitness world is bad, but as a whole, a persons individual needs, abilities, goals, commitment, drive and most importantly, safety are rarely taken into consideration. That’s something everyone should consider when they are taking advice from the latest self-anointed guru with a new trick up his/her sleeve.
